Top-5 CFL RB Fantasy Football Seasons of All-Time

FANTASY
With playoffs fast approaching and the fantasy football season coming to a close I bet you’re doing a little mental math, checking out who needs to step up and get er’ done over the next few weeks to take crown. Find out the best CFL QB Fantasy Football seasons of All-Time.

By Brodie Lawson

A few weeks back I wrote a post listing the top 5 CFL quarterbacks from a fantasy football perspective – and just so you know I didn’t forget about Warren Moon! He was 6th on the list his best season for fantasy points was 1983 with 383 points.

But this time around I wanted to take a look at CFL running backs from the past to see how they stack up in fantasy football. It’s a lot more difficult to narrow down the best (or top 5) running back seasons for fantasy points since the CFL has had many great RBs. So this is my list of former CFL running backs you would LOVE to have on your fantasy football team!

In order to get these numbers I used the traditional fantasy point model:

1 point for every 10 rushing yards
6 points for every rushing touchdown
-2 points for every fumble
1 point for every 10 receiving yards
6 points for every receiving touchdown

Now before you take a look note that George Reed should be on this list- I know. I cannot find his stats by season, but he holds a few CFL records including the most 1000 yards+ rushing seasons all-time, regular season.

  1. Nice list, do not think Pringle should be there; Not only did you miss Reed, what about Lovell Coleman, Gerry James, and I think the best was Earl “the earthquake” Lundsford.
    He was the first running back to rush for over a Mile in ANY football league.

  2. Fantastic ; players at a position that demands toughness , smarts and stamina ! Glad to be reminded of them . Mike Pringle : and the famed Grey Cup games with BC Lions still draws smiles from Baltimore fans . I watched a Sweet Adeline concert from BCCC auditorium ; that Baltimore County Community College and BC drew smiles ! As for the RB’s you assessed good stuff ! rb
